Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend? Sunday was pretty chilled for us this week. I am still working full time and sometimes I have to work on Saturdays. It was one of those weekends. On Sunday we stayed in the morning and had a nice breakfast on our couch. Once the sky cleared up a bit, after some Netflix and apparently a ‘3h long shower’ (which I am sure is highly exaggerated!) we set off to explore our new area. We have moved into our new house (more about this in a another post) around 2 months ago. However, our life has been pretty hectic since, so we didn’t have a lot of time to do that before. Thankfully, things have slowed down now. Which is why it was finally time to visit one of the biggest parks in our immediate area – Avery Hill Park.
I am not much of a traveller now as my belly is getting heavy, so we stick to closer to home locations. There are also days where I feel worse than others so it’s good to be able to be home within 30 minutes. Fortunately, there’s so much to discover in London! You never run out of new places to see and visit. I guess that’s the beauty of this city. I believe it is nice to disconnect for a few hours during the weekend and lose yourself in nature. Walking around the park was even more special this time as I have decided this will be my go to park when our son is born. It’s not very close to our house, but it’s by far the largest.
The park is very big and although there were quite a few people there it didn’t feel crowded. It looked like the perfect place for a picnic and we might do just that next weekend! There are also plenty of benches where you can sit down and watch the world go by, read a book or feed a screaming baby. 😉
After our walk in Avery Hill Park, my boyfriend cooked some well deserved cheesy pasta at home and we curled up on the sofa watching Netflix. We started watching Money Heist and we are definitely addicted. It’s so well made! Every episode leaves you wanting more. After a couple of episodes, it was time to say goodbye to the weekend and go to bed.
The perfect lazy Sunday if you ask me. We all need one of those every now and then, right? What did you do? I’m sure a lot of you are away enjoying the sunshine on the beaches around Europe!
